According to legend, the Valais vintner Léon is supposed to have invented raclette. One cold day he warmed a piece of cheese over a wood fire and enjoyed the melted cheese. Produced in the Valais, today the cheese is enjoyed as a special culinary treat. Raclette tastes just as delicious during the winter as in summer. Eating raclette outside is a particularly enjoyable experience, with the cheese melted over an open wood fire.
